    Hello everyone! I've self-published two books thus far and I'm close to releasing my third. Needless to say, writing is a passion and I'm excited to learn with people here and provide advice when the opportunity arises!

    With that being said, I'd love to hear from those who are having problems getting the type of attention their writing deserves. Please check out the poll attached to this post.

    Welcome. :)

    I can't answer your poll because I don't expect to make a living from fiction writing. That's what my day job (non fiction writing) is for. I think you need a much stronger motivation than money to write.

    Welcome to the forum!

    Here's our New Member Quick Start to get you started. It's certainly challenging to get noticed especially when you've self-published. We have a book store on this forum, linked to Amazon, that at least allows members to find other members' books.

    Also, take a peek at our publishing sub-forum where you should find more information about self-publishing and all things related. :)

    Best regards,
    -Kat
